New Sulaibikhat Medical Center
Light, internal transparency, courtyards, security, privacy, boundary wall
UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The building stands as a pioneer in the healthcare sector, where challenging issues such as privacy and security are addressed using a model where courtyards attached to the façade are the driving element behind this unique typology.
Due to the density and variety of the program, the spaces are sectioned off into multiple self-sufficient departments, which can operate independently from one another. Therefore easy navigation through the clinic is key, where each of the departments is color coded with sufficient signage throughout, to facilitate a universal way-finding technique.
